Salih works as a night watchman at a town cemetery. Despite his advanced age he walks two kilometres to work every day. He has been leading a reclusive life because of his job, detached from real life. The things he experiences on the way to the town, strange men who come over to his post, and a young girl who visits him every night in his dream lead Salih into deep paranoia. What is real and what is not is indistinguishable... Until the first rays of the day... Watchman tells a baroque tale that combines Chekhov’s dry humour with Giovanni Papini’s fantastic characters.
